-A A +A

 SHEPHERDSVILLE - Once again this season, The Pioneer News will run the results from the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League in each Wednesday’s edition.

The statistics used each week are provided by the league and the individual teams. Questions about yardage, scoring and tackles should be directed to the league and those teams.

Stat keepers are asked to make sure that the following information is included on each score sheet: their team’s name, their opponent’s name, age division and the final score of the game. Also, yardage for rushing, passing and receiving are needed and should be totaled. Rushing yards include only those yards from the line of scrimmage (not punt and kick-off return yardage). Those players scoring points should also be noted.

Players’ first and last names (actual names, not nicknames) should also be provided.

Any stat sheets not turned into the league packet by the end of play on Sunday, can be delivered to The Pioneer News’ office in Shepherdsville on Monday before noon. Stat sheets can also be faxed to 955-9704 or the information can be emailed to www.pioneernews.net.

It is very rare that space will allow us to run results that are not in our office on the Monday following the games.
